      It's nearly indestructible. The chemistry geeks say this is because it's almost 100% polyurethane.

        My personal theory is because it's prettier than the other types of plastic...

          And the drawbacks of an indestructible disc from a marketing perspective?

            Well, exactly. I don't know if that really has anything to do with its disappearance, but it does make you wonder.

              well some of the ESP/Star discs are much more stable and have a different flight. Pro D/DX breaks in too quickly and I never liked the feel of it. Elite X/Pro breaks in too fast and is usually less stable to begin with and has a different flight as well. Elite Z/Champion doesn't have the grip or durability.

              Champion Edition: durable and dependable, like Latitude 64 Opto!

                Actually, that CE Eagle I found with the mower wasn't quite indestructible.

                  I would have stopped making it too. Or maybe just charge an insane amount for them.

                    I always love the theories about Innova discontinuing CE because it was too durable.

                    That being said, it was really nice plastic. Its a hair more grippy than Champ/Z, glides a touch more, is very durable, and molded up pretty nicely (if not a little flat).

                    I think Opto is just as durable and is more grippy, but doesn't glide quite as well. It also can mold up with more dome than CE, which is good for some discs.

                      Well it's hard to not think that when they come out with crap like R-Pro.

                      WORST PLASTIC EVER!

                        i once found a CE firebird perfect condition, no name no number, and got my first ace with it a week later. CE plastic is great

                          The reason why I ask this question is because this summer I came accross a brand new Valkryie at a garage sale and picked it up for .25 cents. I went to throw it and some older golfers freaked out. They said it should be on the wall. To me this is a crazy idea. So I just wanted to know what the deal was. And while we are on the topic, I can't quite wrap my head around collecting disc you aren't going to use. Whats up?

                            I've had people say the same thing to me when I throw my AbramObama Buzzz. Whats the point of having a disc if you aren't gonna throw it?

                              I don't understand the "put it on the wall" mentality either. Discs want to fly.

                              (Although I realize you shouldn't anthropomorphize discs; they hate that.)
